Skilandis or Kindziukas is a Lithuanian sausage made of meat, fat, salt, pepper and garlic. The ground meat is traditionally pressed into a pig's stomach or bladder, but today may be contained in other skins. The sausage is dried and cold-smoked.[1][2][3]

Skilandis dates back to at least the 16th century.

The term "skilandis" has protected status under European Union law.[4]
